Not one to keep your feet on the ground? Get your head in the clouds where it belongs during this tandem hang gliding lesson!

You'll take the plunge from 3,500-feet up, launching off the side of Kagel Mountain in the San Fernando Valley. Prior to your launch, you'll meet your instructor and pilot at Sylmar Flight Park for a quick look at the landing area, before a 45-minute scenic drive up the mountain.

There, you'll help assemble the modern, lightweight tandem glider you'll be using, and receive an orientation on safety and flight mechanics.

In the air, you'll enjoy 2 miles of exhilarating flight that could take anywhere from 10-20 minutes. Your instructor will show you the basics of steering as you go, even giving you the chance to take the controls for yourself.

Of course, you'll enjoy an incredible bird's-eye view of the valley as well, including a view of Los Angeles!
